What a delightful story! On a side note, I would encourage anyone who has a special recipe or even a family favorite to write it down! My mom was a really good cook but didn't write down any recipes. She passed away some years ago and there are things she made, which may very well have come from a box, bag or jar, that I miss having. I've started this for my son. One year I bought him a wooden recipe box and included several family recipes. I add to it when I think of it or when he requests something.
